Men and Medical Aesthetics
- Posted on: May 16 2019
There is an increasing number of men interested in evidence-based medical aesthetic procedures to improve the health of the skin, keep facial lines at bay, and correct the volume loss that occurs as we age.
Below are some of the areas that can be addressed very successfully:
Everyone benefits from sunblock that contains Zinc and/or Titanium Dioxide. The good news is that the greasy formulations that used to drip into eyes and cause irritation have been replaced with nanoformulations that are lightweight and easy to use. Men with acne will benefit from an AHA cleanser and those with rosacea a more gentle cleanser and topical Vitamin C.
Many men are come into our clinic looking for solutions to red cheeks and veins on their nose. The remedy is simple and effective thanks to lasers such as Excel V and IPL photo-rejuvenation. Skin care products that are gentle to sensitive skin are also an important part of a rosacea reducing regime. Sunblock containing Zinc is essential as well.
ACNE AND ACNE SCARRING
These conditions can take an emotional toll on teens and young men. There are effective treatments for both active acne and the scarring it can produce. I am always dismayed to see acne in a young person because there are such effective treatments now. Prevention of scarring is very possible and all steps should be taken to make sure it does not occur.
CHEMICAL PEELS AND HYDRAFACIAL MD
With busy lives, men’s skin can suffer from a lack of exfoliation and deep cleansing. For men who are prone to active acne breakouts, deep cleaning treatments can be very helpful as they gently exfoliate and deliver powerful AHA’s into the skin. A HYDRAFACIAL MD treatment will have your face glowing after just one treatment and this result can be maintained with simple regular appointments.
I see a lot of men who want their forehead and smile lines relaxed. This is easy to achieve with small amounts of Botox. With regular treatments, these lines can be prevented from becoming ‘etched’ into the face. Botox can also be used for effective prevention of Migraine and to treat Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the underarms, hairline, and hands. Some extended benefits programs will cover the cost of the Botox for these treatments.
Fillers are used as a non-surgical way to smooth lines and wrinkles. They are also used for face contouring and in men can be used to augment and strengthen the jawline. Treatments can be maintained for a more youthful, manly look.
THE FIELD OF MEDICAL AESTHETICS is advancing all the time. Men, as well as women, are embracing the techniques to achieve the look and thereby the CONFIDENCE they want.
